My Daughter's Mountain Wedding & Purple Day Awareness

She finally did it!  My oldest married her long time fiance and made it official on Friday. The wedding was very intimate and only included parents of the bride and groom along with my other two children and my grand baby.  It was a typical windy day but I think it delighted us with a bit more wind than normal much to our chagrin but we made the best of it.  The pictures didn't turn out as well as I had hoped due to the overcast skies.  I'm only sharing the younger girls pictures as I'm waiting for my daughter to post the pictures of her and her husband so I don't steal their thunder.

The dresses and shoes for the girls are from Adorable Baby Clothing who have not only casual clothing but the most beautiful selection of children's formal wear of the highest quality.  I have been a huge fan of Adorable Baby Clothing for years and have purchased many dresses in the past as I regard them as heirloom quality and am already passing them down to my grandchild and my younger daughter.

I even used the dresses for promotion an upcoming purple day for epilepsy as well as a new bear for my nine year old's non-profit, Angels4Epilepsy.  If you want to check out all the beautiful clothing for boys and girls, just visit AdorableBabyClothing.com.

Our Hello Kitty Party

We finally had the girls' Hello Kitty party and even though I didn't get to go to the extent I wanted, it turned out with smiles from them.  The wind here is unreal so I had to move some of it inside and the part I had outside, had to be taken down as quickly as it was put up.  I had an image in my mind how it would turn out but no thanks to the wind, I wasn't able to do it.

This picture was a sweet shop which I took a white bookcase and altered it into my shop.  I used fabric, styrofoam (top part with the Hello Kitty wrap), two covered wrapping paper tubes to hold up the top and a hot glue gun.  I also used both my Silhouette SD Cutter and the Cricut with Hello Kitty cartridge to make the sign along with Elmer's glue adhesives for poster boards.

The table was just an existing table we had along with Hello Kitty plastic plates, cups and hats.

I bought pink and black Sixlets for the candy jar and via Amazon, 
Hello Kitty Marshmallow Pop, 1.48-Ounce Packages (Pack of 24) and PEZ Hello Kitty, 0.58-Ounce Assorted Candy Dispensers (Pack of 12) and Hello Kitty Candy Tin Sours Raspberry.

This was the little set up outside that included cupcakes with handmade picks, popcorn cones with Hello Kitty ribbons and push up pops as seen in the book Push-up Pops.  I used Push Pop Containers 24ct. Clear Plastic Push up Pops to layer brownie and pink icing.  I adorned Hello Kitty charms along the edge with a ribbon.

The pre-party dresses were compliments of Adorable Baby Clothing that have a beautiful assortment of amazing quality clothing for children.  From every day wear to formal wear, the selection is definitely there.  My favorite part outside of the superb customer service is the ease in finding the sizes you want if you decide to dress more than one child in the same outfit.

Party Invitation Examples:

Activities included painting our nails with the Hello Kitty manicure set, playing pin the bow on Hello Kitty and practicing riding our new bikes.

Party It Up with Adorable Baby Clothing: Elegant & Minnie Mouse Zebra Theme

Having a party or need to find those perfect outfits for a special occasion or pictures?  I buy my formal wear and special occasion clothing through the best place available online.  Not only do I get an unmatched quality but I get individualized customer service with even an e-mail smile.  Adorable Baby Clothing is the place for your children's clothing especially for formal wear.  My closets are full of now heirloom quality clothing that I am passing down through my children and now my grandchild.

Check out this new adorable dress that can be personalized:

Garden Princess Orchid Pink Pique Dress w/Camilla Pink Sash

This would make a perfect first party dress for your little princess.  There are other colors available as well as sizes and matching fancy pants.

I have a post on our Minnie Mouse party we had last summer and when I saw this Minnie Mouse zebra tutu, I only wished it were available for our party.  Check it out:

Minnie Mouse Tutu Set-Zebra

I love it!  Our theme was pink with a zebra print accent.  You could have your little princess wear the first dress for greeting guests and then change into the tutu dress for some loud crazy fun that your guests will never forget.

You have to top off the outfit with an equally fun birthday hat:

Hot Pink with Zebra Boutique Birthday Hat

If you are thinking of having a Minnie Mouse party, check out my pictures and you can read the entire post here.



Our Princess/Dress Up Party

In honor of my two nieces going back to Indiana, I wanted to have a special party for them.   Since we had left over Cinderella costumes from prior purchases from Adorable Baby Clothing, I chose a princess/dress up party for them.  The only things we were missing were tutus, jewelry and feather boas.  Claire's was the perfect stop for this impromptu visit and I spent way more than I wanted to but at the end of the day, it was worth it as memories are priceless.


My oldest put nails on them that we also found at Claires and they all looked like little divas!  I used the roll of zebra paper we had left over from the Minnie Mouse party for the background.  I used my make up as what dress up party is complete without it!  I definitely learned why I never became a make up artist!

I also stopped at Publix and picked out a pretty cake for them to have Kool-aid and cake to top it off.

Overall, we had a great time, wrapped up great memories and I tried to save money with existing things like costumes.  I plan on using Smilebox to give the girls a complete online memory of their summer with us!  This was a special summer for us with their dad being in Kuwait for the year so I hope having my nieces helped.  I had one of my other nieces here for two weeks and took her back two weeks ago while the other two decided to stay for four weeks.

Ficklets and Adorable Baby Clothing for Easter & Every Day

As Easter approaches, I can't help but think what a wonderful day to dress up and embrace all that Easter stands for.  Whether you are going on an Easter egg hunt, a family function or church, getting dressed up is fun.  This post is focusing on two of my favorite mompreneurs:  Ficklets and Adorable Baby Clothing.


If you are looking for cute Easter bag stuffers, check out the great selection from FickletsThey are perfect for your little one's glasses and come in over 100 varieties.  If your children don't like wearing glasses, they might have a new way of thinking about them after they get to put these little adorable charm huggers on them.

Ficklets are becoming the greatest invention for kid's eyeglasses since they give them the ability to personalize without breaking the bank.  They are interchangeable and easy to wear, inexpensive to buy and will make your little one happy.  My niece loves her Ficklets.

Ficklet's inventor, Ros Guerrero, came up with this great idea as she tried to meet the needs of her beautiful daughter, Gem.  The word "ficklet" means to change a lot hence the wonderful creation of Ficklets was born.  You can read more here.  Ficklets is not only innovative in the idea and creation of Ficklets but Ros is the most compassionate, caring person I've met.  She provides wonderful customer service and is hands on.

Ficklets is becoming international hit too:

“I’ve quickly learned that eyeglass charms transcend style and cultural differences because I’m seeing orders pour in from customers around the world, including the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Venezuela, Dubai, Ireland and Russia,” says Guerrero. “This means children of any nationality are able to feel more confident when wearing their eyeglasses. The future is wide open for Ficklets.”

Whether you want something different for Easter or have a little one that wears glasses, you should check out http://www.ficklets.com/ as there is something for both boys and girls.

Easter Fashions, Baby Shower Products & Toys at AdorableBabyClothing.com

I love any excuse to buy pretty dresses for my two younger girls not to mention more opportunities to take pictures!  I have to cherish these moments while I can since we are only blessed a short time when they are young.  When it comes to special occasion dresses, I look no further than AdorableBabyClothing due to the great selection of gorgeous clothes and the ability to select dresses in two varying sizes such as 4T and 8 in girls.

I've tried in the past to go to the mall and spent hours searching for two identical dresses in the two sizes to no avail.  I love the fact that I can find what I need at http://adorablebabyclothing.com/.  The dress I chose is above and it's a lovely Lilac and Purple Butterfly Embellished Taffeta dress.  I cannot wait to see them on the girls.

With my oldest getting ready to have her own child, there is a great selection of baby items and baby shower products such as invitations, favors and much more.  The "Baby is Blooming" seed favor packets are one of my favorites so I'll have fun planning her shower.

Another relatively new feature at AdorableBabyClothing are toys!  I'm not talking a few toys but MANY toys with such a variety that any child would be happy.  My middle one loves horses and there are so many great horse toys to choose from to include Melissa and Doug toys.

I am a repeat customer of AdorableBabyClothing and wanted to share this store with you not only because of my great experiences of receiving beautiful, high quality clothes but the owner is exceptional and provides first rate customer service.  No matter what your need, clothing for every day wear, special occasions, school uniforms, personalized products to baby gifts, toys and more, AdorableBabyClothing has it all.
